IBM is proud to be a Headline Sponsor for the Barcelona OpenStack Summit. Expectations are high for the upcoming summit as speaker session acceptance rates were extremely competitive for Barcelona. With that in mind, I am extremely pleased to inform you that IBM has a large number of presentations and speakers presenting at this prestigious conference. We have over 50 speakers presenting in 32 different sessions. For this summit, IBM continues its strong focus on OpenStack initiatives that are critical for successful production deployment of OpenStack at scale.

On Tuesday, don’t miss Jesse Proudman and Animesh Singh talking about their lessons learned operating hybrid Cloud Foundry deployments on top of OpenStack and how they used underlying technologies like BOSH, Razon, Ansible, Rally to seamlessly operate them. Also on Tuesday, we have some excellent sessions on container technology and how it intersects with OpenStack projects. The team will cover topics such as Magnum, Kuryr, OCI and CNCF and demonstrate live migration of container workloads between OpenStack Nova hosts. Another can’t miss session is Brian Cline’s Swift at Scale session that highlights IBM SoftLayer’s journey of running Swift in over 22 datacenters and the launching of several multi-facility Swift Clusters.

In our Wednesday sessions, big themes include security and scalability with a heavy focus on networking and containers. Neutron and OVN legend Kyle Mestery and team will be speaking about how to scale an OVN-powered OpenStack. Ton Ngo and Winnie Tsang will discuss how they scale Kubernetes, Swarm, and Mesos container clusters managed by OpenStack Magnum. Also look for a talk on securing container platforms by Salman Baset and Phil Estes and a great hands-on workshop by Fernando Diaz and Elvin Tubillara on securing your cloud.

On Thursday, look for some outstanding sessions on OpenStack Interoperability. IBMers have been leading a large cross-community effort called the OpenStack Interoperability Challenge that has been focused on driving improved OpenStack workload portability by demonstrating best practices for automated deployment of enterprise application workloads that work across a variety of OpenStack clouds. After your fill of OpenStack interoperability, be sure to catch more sessions on OpenStack networking solutions, federated cloud access, OpenStackClient, and cluster management of thousands of VMs using OpenStack Senlin.

The daily summaries presented above are only a sampling of the great IBM speaker sessions you will find at OpenStack Barcelona. A complete list of all IBM speaker sessions is provided below. In addition, IBM is also hosting an IBM Client Day on Wednesday, October 26th starting at 11:15am in Room 116 of the CCIB. This is a full-day event featuring Thought Leaders, Executives, and Community Leaders who will share their market perspective, knowledge of OpenStack, and insights on how to design, develop, and maintain applications built on Open Technologies. We also will have book signings and free book giveaways for the extremely popular OpenStack Keystone book. Stop by the IBM Booth in the Marketplace at lunch time on Tuesday, October 25th to get your copy.  We look forward to seeing you at all these events!
